So places like Russia throw a lot of people in jail for semi bullshit things like having drugs like hash oil. Of course, many countries call this a crime, and do not want foreigners having narcotics. So it is this thing called a crime, and when you travel you try not to bring contraband into other countries. Now the US has this woman who is really good at throwing a ball through a hoop and bouncing it on the ground while playing a game called basketball. So it seems this woman decided to have some hash oil in her possesion while traveling in russia and they arrested her like many other people. But this bitch is good at bouncing a ball and throwing it through a hoop so the US has to do something about this because I guess we need her to do that a lot while smoking hash oil at home? So now the US is pushing a deal to release some guy called the merchant of death, or something like that, in exchange for this woman. This guy sells arms to really bad people who kill others. Of course, so does the US. So our president wants to do a prisoner swap so we can get our hash smoking, game playing, woman back from russia. So we are going to release a merchant of death for a basketball player who smokes hash at some really stupid times? Can someone explain this shit to me so it makes any kind of sense, except for russia who would probably love to buy some weapons from the merchant of death. Doesn't the US have ;lots of people who are good at bouncing balls and throwing them through hoops? Why is this woman so special we will do anything and everything to get her back? Am I missing something?
